Rapha Men's Pro Team Lightweight Wind Jacket

https://cimg6.ibsrv.net/gimg/bikefor...a8505575f.jpeg

Excellent jacket! Mesh web on the back for venting. Easily fits in a jersey pocket along with a set of knee warmers.

The otherwise fine Perl Izumi I squeezed back into last fall is now flapping like a sail and a downsizing was called for. (The Rapha M fits me perfectly at 6'0" 163 lbs.)

I've had white shoes (not these though) for a few years and they stayed pretty clean surprisingly.

A spare Campagnolo Veloce 12/23 10sp cassette - I just put a new one on the bike, but I'm a little concerned that 10sp parts might start to become more scarce, so I want to have my next cassette lined up.
A Selle Italia Flite 1990 saddle. My trusty (~17-year-old) Max Flite is literally falling apart, with duct tape holding the cover together, but the mounts are starting to come loose at the back. I'm replacing it with some trepidation (all saddle buying is a bit of a gamble), but rather than risk saddle disintegration and seat post impalement, I bit the bullet. The Flite 1990 looks close dimensionally, and with a real leather cover, Ti rails, ~230g weight and a classic look, it hits all the marks. Fingers crossed that it's comfy.

Think these are half the weight of what I currently have on my bike.

I just bought 5 of these myself. I've gone through 3 tubes in the last 2 weeks. 1 on my bike, 1 I gave to a neighbor, and the third onto my daughter's bike. I only have one spare left. I patch them in batches but I don't have any left to patch. I needed new anyway because I now ride a 700x28 tire in front and all of my tubes were up to 700x25. I know they will work anyway but now they're gone. These Vittorias are perfect because they are 25/28, not so big to fit a 32 or larger, and will still fit the 23 if necessary. Only my daughter's bike still has 23, in fact she has my tires that I replaced with 25 and 28.

Segoi RS Pro bibs. I bought a pair last month but due to Covid i'm riding so much I wanted to have a 3rd pair so i'm doing laundry less.

i'll give the 4d bibs a try


trying to get used to the pryzewalski 4d bibs. ordered large size as i always have with the 3d bibs.

the 4d's eliminate the "extra" material in the front so no creases but maan, are they tight. haven't gained any

weight since i started using the 3d's but seems like i should have ordered xl. the 4d pad is fine and comparable

to the 3d. the 4d's also add an extra inch or so of coverage down the thigh along with a really tight seam circling

around the thigh. leaves a noticeable impression for quite a while. keep thinking they'll loosen up a little but

worn and washed all three pairs (and line dried) a few times now and no dice. keeping them as they may be incentive enough

to drop 5-10 lbs and see if it helps (doubtful). will probably just relegate them to rides under 50 miles/local stuff.

when i'm going out all day or on a long ride, i'll be reaching for the 3d's instead. will not be ordering the 4d's again.

Do you happen to know if they're hookless compatible? Report back with your thoughts either way, though.

NoWhammies 07-29-20 02:47 PM

Will do WhyFi I probably won't ride the tyres for a bit as the two on my bike now still have some life in them...And just like that, I've cursed myself to flats and or some other major type of tyre repair... :cry:

Bought tons of stuff over the last month. FFWD F4r wheels, ENVE SES carbon bar, ENVE stem, Lake CX238 shoes in wide this time. Selle SMP Lite 219 saddle. Finally did a professional bike fit so I needed to change some things on the bike.

What mount is that for your Varia?

Itís the Garmin mount sold separately.

Wait; you're supposed to BUY THEM?


The last half dozen I picked up were orphaned at our town recycling center. IOW, free. They were stashed in barns and garages around the Ranch until I got inspired enough to work on them. That inspiration finally struck after I got tired of looking at the matched set of red Chicago Schwinn Suburbans. A mixte and a regular, both too damn tall, but too damn tempting not to rebuild. So they're scruffy and showing their age, but done. It cost me hours, tires, rim strips, and brake pads.


They both have the underrated but cool FFS and Positron rear derailleurs. Try figuring out why the rear chainwheel cluster won't turn when you've never seen one of these. 😏 Decent paint, worn decals, marginally presentable fenders and alloy "Schwinn Approved" rear carriers. More springs than I've ever seen in a saddle. Two big coils at the back and a half dozen longitudinal ones make it remarkably cushy. With the upright touristy bars, it's a great ride, even though too tall for me. So I don't stop unless absolutely necessary. 😄


Pics when I grow up.
